Justin and Aaron, played by directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, fled from a UFO suicide cult as children. When Justin convinces his brother to visit the cult one more time, they notice that the members haven‘t aged a day.
Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead have started to create their own small indie horror universe. In 2012 they made their first feature, RESOLUTION. In the film Michael wants to help his drug addicted childhood friend Chris. They find photos, videos, and films that show scenes from their own past and future around the run-down hot and the entity that observes and communicates with them seemingly destroys them. RESOLUTION is a wild mix of media, a dirty, small, studenty horror film. The story that requires reconstruction is either a great time loop mind fuck film or a thesis idea straight out of a postmodern Kafka course, depending on the perspective.
All the characters from RESOLUTION reappear in THE ENDLESS, but this time it‘s from a different perspective. In RESOLUTION Chris and Mike discover old videos of a UFO cult, brothers Justin and Aaron (played by the directors themselves) got out of that cult when they were kids. Because their life in freedom is so tough and depressing, Justin convinces his brother to visit the cult again, there‘s delicious vegetarian food there instead of ramen after all. The stories of forced castrations and collective suicide plans that Aaron told the younger Justin and the media seems to be ridiculous at first. The two arrive at the friendly land commune and the residents brew craft beer and seem to be sexually open. But the members haven‘t aged a day, there are two moons in the sky, and prophetic messages seem to come out of thin air. The ENDLESS universe begins to unfold and it‘s interesting enough to justify a third film, perhaps from the perspective of the young hippies who embraced dread.
